MG Motor is all set to launch an electric SUV in India by 2020. It is expected that the company is likely to launch its first car in the second quarter of 2019 and its second launch will be an electric SUV in just a year time from the launch of its first car.
Michael Yang, Executive Director of International Business, SAIC Motor & President of SAIC Motor International Company said, “MG will launch a globally-competitive pure-electric SUV in India, to make our contribution to India’s energy and environmental strategies. The pure electric SUV will be a breakthrough chapter in the EV space in India, being one of its kind in the market. This is in addition to the first SUV which we plan to launch in the second quarter of next year.”
The electric SUV will be highly localized. Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India said, “All our products will be designed and engineered in UK and China with the support of Indian engineers. These vehicles will be heavily localized, built at our plant in Halol by our engineers conforming to global quality standards and validated and customized for India to suit the Indian road and driving conditions.”
Further details of the electric SUV is yet behind the veil.
